Dr. Amy Lynch, assistant professor of Geography, received the 2021 Faculty Sustainability Award from Ohio University’s Office of Sustainability.

Lynch is an urban planner with a conservation and environmental management background whose research is focused on green infrastructure and sustainability community monitoring. She was nominated for building her classes around experiential exercises that engage students with the local community on topics of sustainability.

“Dr. Lynch gives experiential assignments that require students to visit parts of Athens to observe how different types of city infrastructure provide benefits for residents, the environment, and the economy,” her nomination read. “Last semester, two of her students conducted a research project on the impact of the COVID pandemic on bikeway use. Dr. Lynch also uses this data as a teaching tool in her classes, which helps students to consider the benefits of active transportation for people, the environment, and the economy.”
